#March4Democracy #Peterloo #Brexit March Manchester 11 May 2019
Around 280 people assembled from across Manchester and the north to commemorate the fight for democracy by 60,000 peaceful protestors in St. Peters Square, 1819. Local magistrates sent in the local militia to cavalry charge, slashing with sabres. 15 were killed, over 600 injured. The fight of ordinary people to have their democratic say, their voice respected continues. Brexit shows a line of continuity of contempt for ordinary people.

Wigan - A Leave majority with a Revoker MP
Wigan voted 63.9% to Leave in the Referendum of 2016. It's a Labour constituency. Lisa Nandy, the local Labour MP was active in machinations in Parliament to revoke Brexit. Something of a janus faced politician, she has a high media profile and argues that the north is being ignored. Her position is duplicitous. She speaks with fork tongue. One message to locals, entirely different political activities in Parliament.In this short, David, a former soldier called on to 'fight for democracy' by Tony Blair in Iraq, is scathing about what he sees as the removal of democracy in the UK. Also feature interviews with local Wigan people during a pro Brexit demonstration on a rainy Wigan Saturday.
